Description

Hello my Friends

first of all sorry for my bad english, I'll do my best to descripe my build.

I'm a 25 year old guy who lives in Germany and likes playing videogames especially console games. Since i was 4 years old I only played on console, from Sega Genesis till Playstation 4. But I'm not one of those console gamers who talks sh*t about PC gaming in fact I always dreamed to have a powerfull Gaming Pc. The two things who held me back was Money and "having no clue how to build a PC". One day my 6 year old office-PC (I7 2600 & geforce gt 545) was getting slower from time to time. So I decided that it was time for my first gaming pc. I began in January watching lots and lots of youtube videos like Linus Tech Tips, PC Games Hardware and some random videos on "how to build a PC". After 5 months I was ready to buy my parts.

Here there are:

  • Intel Core I7 6700k I decided to buy the i7 6700k and not the I5 6600k because I do lots of CAD work at home. I will overclock this cpu tomorrow at 4,40 Ghz

  • NZXT Kraken x61 I heard lots of good things about this CPU aio watercooler and it's all true. my temparatures with this cooler are 21°C in Idle and 73°C in full load. The only bad thing about this cooler are the fans they are too loud, maybe i'll change it with some other fans.

  • Asus Maximus VIII Ranger ATX Z170 A good Skylake Motherboard. I have choose this one because I need a simple Z170 Motherboard without too much plastic, USB 3.1 or Aura LED. Plus Buy one Asus product and you will get Doom 2016 for free.

  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 Just some 16GB DDR4 Ram nothing to see here

  • Samsung 850 EVO 1TB "Why?! You could buy a 2TB HDD and a 250GB SSD!!" My answer? why not?

  • Zotac GTX 1080 AMP Edition! Actually I ordered the AMP Extreme! But I waited 42 fricking days and the card was still sold out in Germany, so I decided to pick the AMP Edition. This card is a Beast with 17776 Points at Firestrike (My old office PC had 1148 points). But most importan is that i can finally watch 4K Gay Midget orgy p0rn at glorious 60FPS

  • Phanteks Enthoo Luxe It was love at first sight! glorious case with ambient lighning on both side and lots of space for cable management.

  • be quiet! Straight Power 700W a very silent PSU

  • LG DVD/CD Writer yes I still use CD Drives! It's a very cheap CD Drive but also a very loudy! Thank god I dont use it daily.

  • Win7 Professional + SP1 64bit The good old Win7

  • Be quiet Silent Wings 2 140mm The case Fan of the Enthoo Luxe were too loud so I replaced the fan witch the Silent Wings 2. 2 at the front and 1 at the back as exhaust. Extreme silent!!

  • Enthoo Luxe Multicolor LED Strip 2m Oh yeah make it bling chicks gonna love it

Thats it! please leave an up (is that what you call a pcpp?) and a comment with your impression or opinion I will try to answer if i can

Do you need m.2? I'm trying to debate if i should even get that. I was planning on getting the Samsung 850 512 pro ssd

I am going to order the same case and cooler. Did you get extra fans for that cooler? If so, which ones?

sicily-power submitter 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

sorry for the late answer. About the case You can't go wrong with the Enthoo Luxe case It's beatiful and for a beginner like me it was very easy to build the hardware in that case. Now about the cooler The Kraken comes with 2 nzxt 140 Fans. I still have it and yes they are a bit noisy but you get used to it after a while. so no i didn't buy extra fans for the cooler (Radiator). Hope I could help

submariner 1 point 1 month ago

Thanks. I got all my parts on Black Friday. I wanted the Kraken X62 but it was out of stock. Wondering whether to return my X61 when the 62 becomes available later this month. I bought a couple of extra 140 case fans too - so my case will be like a breezy forest ! Hope to build it all this weekend.
